Spend Valentine’s Day at Hotel Felix

Chicago is the third biggest city in the United States, which means we have a (seemingly) never-ending list of restaurants, bars and shops to keep you entertained for any occasion. We believe there’s no better city (or more romantic city) to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your significant other.

This Valentine’s Day, we are offering a wonderful Valentine’s Day Package to celebrate with your special someone. The Romance Package runs through February 14 and includes accommodations for two in one of our luxurious guest rooms and a bottle of champagne delivered to your room. That means you don’t have to celebrate Valentine’s Day on the actual holiday to take advantage of this sweet room package and deal.

To book a room, visit here.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with passion and excitement…the Hotel Felix Way!

Adler After Dark

Although many people believe that visits to the planetarium should be reserved just for children, the Adler Planetarium has another idea in mind.

The Adler Planetarium, located in Chicago’s South Loop, has a monthly exhibit that invites adults 21+ up to explore the planetarium with drinks and entertainment. On every third Thursday of the month, it offers unique entertainment that’s perfect for local Chicagoans or tourists.

The next event is Thursday, January 21 and it will feature the topic “First Contact,” which includes a variety of exhibits that show us what would ever happen to Earth if we ever encountered alien civilizations.

Green Resolutions for the New Year

Most New Years resolutions tend to be personal and vary between individuals. The most popular often range from getting into shape, less time using technology, etc. But what would happen to the Earth if we all agreed to integrate eco-friendly resolutions into our daily routines? One thing is for sure: we would be one step closer to saving our environment.

Kevin Pink, writer for the Center of EcoTechnology, has a few green resolutions to try for the new year. We thought these were great ideas for green resolutions to incorporate into our daily routines. You can see the full article here here. A few tips from the article:

1. Save energy. Determine your energy use, then figure out how you can reduce it by a significant amount.

2. Choose green energy.

3. Commit to reuse. Bring your own bags when you go shopping. Stop drinking bottled water and carry a high-quality reusable water bottle. Make your coffee at home and use a thermos or reusable mugs. These little steps can save you a lot of money and are great ways to reduce waste at the same time.

4. Don’t trash it, donate it! Thinking about renovating in 2016? Carefully deconstruct and donate your kitchen cabinets. If you have some extra tiles, molding, or even screws, donate them to EcoBuilding Bargains or other eco-friendly organizations instead of throwing them out. If you’re cleaning out your closet, remember to keep your local Goodwill Industries in mind.

5. Travel smarter. If you can, bike or walk to work, and watch the holiday pounds melt away! If you can’t do that, talk to some coworkers about carpooling. You’ll reduce wear and tear on your vehicles, save gas, and reduce carbon emissions, all of which will save you money!”

We hope you decide to integrate a few of these resolutions into your life. Let us know if you do!

Happy New Year – we wish you a happy, healthy and green 2016!
